Overview

This comprehensive directory provides the most thorough coverage available on resources for the performing arts. In this single volume, researchers will find information on a wide range of topics relating to theatre, film, radio, and television. The book provides documentation on collections as well as individuals. Divided into two main sections, the first part of the book gives resource information on collections and institutions with major holdings in each of the fields under consideration. The remainder of the volume is devoted primarily to a "who's who" of leading academics, archivists, critics, historians, librarians, and scholars in the performing arts. Entries include major accomplishments, publications, academic and professional affiliations, as well as general biographical information. Completing the work is a listing of useful addresses of publishers, bookshops, organizations, periodicals, studios, film commissions, television networks, guilds, unions, and associations. A comprehensive index provides ready access to persons, institutions, and collections referenced throughout.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Theater, film, radio, and television are the performing arts covered here. The first half of the volume is a directory of performing arts collections in the United States. Unfortunately, the annotations for each entry generally are quite skimpyonly a sentence or twoand usually fail to give the size of the collection. Fourteen states have been omitted. The rest of the book consists of several directories, including performing arts bookstores, publishers, organizations, etc. These too are minimal; most listings provide only name, address, and phone number. Existing reference works cover each topic in considerably more detail. Since this handbook's major virtue is the convenience and economy of a single volume, only small libraries and comprehensive collections should consider. Richard W. Gre frath, Univ. of Nevada Lib., Reno
